Robot Vacuum Cleaner Motor Drive Motion

With economic development and technological progress, many scientists are trying to bring more convenience for humans. The first robot vacuum cleaner was launched in the 1990s, but it had frequent problems with colliding with objects and failing to clean the corners. Some market-conscious companies have been optimizing the sweeping machines in the later stage. Until now, vacuum cleaners appear on the market, which have functions of wet mopping, anti-drop, anti-winding, anti-twining, mapping and so on. These characteristics of the cleaner can be enabled by the gear drive module from ZHAOWEI, one of the vacuum cleaner motors manufacturers.


Robot vacuum cleaners are launched based on wireless network technology and AI. The body of the robot vacuum cleaner is generally round-shaped and D-shaped. But in either case, the main hardware equipment is the power supply, charging equipment, motor, mechanical structure, sensor, etc. The robot vacuum cleaner relies on brushless motors to walk and vacuum while relies on wireless, remote control and buttons to set up work. Built-in sensors and artificial intelligence algorithms make it possible to detect obstacles to achieve functions such as anti-collision and route planning.

Robot Vacuum Cleaner Motors Optimized by ZHAOWEI

The principle of ZHAOWEI cleaner module is that the motor drives the gear module to run after receiving the signal. The gear module controls the direction of the robot vacuum cleaner’s wheel and the speed of the brush. The optimized drive module from ZHAOWEI has a flexible response and fast information transmission, which can quickly control the direction of the universal wheel to avoid a collision. The parallel gearbox module of ZHAOWEI cleaner for moving parts such as driving wheels, main brushes and side brushes of the robot vacuum cleaner has the characteristics of low noise and high torque, which can easily clean uneven ground. It can solve the problems of excessive noise, insufficient wheel torque (easy to be trapped in a narrow space), or hair stuck that often appear on the market.


Robot Vacuum Cleaner Motor– Playing an Important Role

Generally speaking, the cleaning ability of the robot vacuum cleaner is related to the brush structure, the design of the cleaner and the suction power of the motor. The larger the suction power it has, the better cleaning effect it will get. The motor from ZHAOWEI can effectively meet this demand based on the vacuum cleaner gear motor. The motors operating in the robot vacuum cleaner are often divided into vacuum cleaner DC motors for walking, vacuum cleaner pump motor for vacuuming and motor for brush. In the walking structure of the robot vacuum cleaner, there is a driven steering wheel on the front and a driving wheel on each side, which is controlled by a motor. The cleaning structure is mainly composed of a vacuum cleaner and a rotating brush driven by a motor. ZHAOWEI adopts DC brushless motors for robot vacuum cleaner, because brushless DC motors have obvious characteristics such as high efficiency, high torque, compact size, high control accuracy and long service life. All of them come to effectively improve the cleaning performance of the robot vacuum cleaner and empower the climbing ability as well as the work efficiency of vacuum cleaners.



Statistics from Statista shows a clear upward trend in the global market for robotic vacuum cleaners from 2015 to 2025. In 2018, the global robotic vacuum market was valued at 1.84 billion U.S. dollars; the market value is forecast to reach 4.98 billion U.S. dollars by 2025. It can be predicted that the robotic vacuum cleaner will have a broad market demand.

The domestic robot vacuum cleaner motor mentioned above is developed and designed for specific customers which is only shown as a case demo here. ZHAOWEI can design, develop, and manufacture products according to the special needs of each customer. It is not for other commercial purposes or sold to a third party.
